WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Shenandoah University women's volleyball team dropped a 3-0 decision to Gallaudet University Tuesday night in the squad's final non-conference road contest of the season.
The Bison (17-15) salvaged a split of the season series with SU (12-15) by winning 25-15, 27-25 and 25-21.
Shenandoah led at 21, 22 and 23 in that middle set only to see its hosts steal the win by combining a kill and a Hornets attack error to score the set-clinching points.
In the third, the two teams were separated by no more than two points until Gallaudet reeled off a 4-0 run to take a 21-16 lead following an SU attack error.
Kaitlyn Kelley stopped that run with a kill, but Shenandoah was able to get no closer than two points the rest of the way.
The Bison clinched the match on a service ace.
Torie Gettier had 10 kills and Kelley nine to pace the Hornets offense; Kelley just missed a double-double after posting 10 digs.
Jasmine Callahan had 21 of the squad's 30 assists.
Sophomore Nicole Shannon had an excellent day at the service line with five aces.
